Abstract : Cost estimates: You could see from my discussion of the History of the ASH Aircraft there have been many, many estimates the ones shown here are those just before and after contract award. The estimates in 1980 were based upon a little simpler aircraft then wound up in the RFP. As you can see the Oct 80 estimate which was made using the draft RFP came very close to the final program cost when the contract was awarded. It must also be remembered that the R/D contract is a fixed price contract and therefore the cost exposurer to the government is limited.
